Osteopathy is a discipline that sees the body as a whole and consider that all the systems of your body are related to each other and work together in balance, when this balance is interrupted a dysfunction is created and pain arise.




The Osteopathy practitioner will use some Osteopathic Manipulative Techniques such as joint mobilization, muscle energy, visceral manipulation and craneosacral techniques among others in order to realign all the structures of the body with the purpose of making the systems work together in harmony which will promote and enhance the body’s ability to heal itself.
